Great Half-Mast

    5 min

    A different twist on the traditional half-mast drink. Grenadine syrup is used instead of cranberry juice and more tequila is added. Overall, it's a great summer drink to be enjoyed all year round.

    I served this cocktail to a a group of friends, who had various tastes. It was a hit with everyone. Perfect balance of sweet/sour taste. Pretty pink color, and it was the only one out of several recipes we tasted that earned a second pitcher request. Use a good quality grenadine, it is the key flavor componet in this drink. Will keep this recipe as a permanent favorite/  -  19 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good. I don't know if I've had anything like this before. I really enjoyed this. Second one I made, I added an additional finger of tequila.  -  04 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Don't know if it's becuase of the brand of sweet and sour I used (Daily's); but there was way too much sweet and sour for my taste. I ended up adding water to dilute the overwhelming pungency of the sweet and sour.  -  30 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
